Tour description

The Emmenuferweg taps a charming region of our canton. It leads along the Kleine Emme from Emmenbruecke until the wellspring behind Soerenberg. The fact, that the path leads to all railwaystations of the route Lucerne – Schuepfheim, acts also very simpatico. The Emmenuferweg offers a welcome possibility to walk along all parts of the path separate. The whole Emmenuferweg is easy to go, only the part between Schuepfheim and Fluehli is a little bit demanding.

Emmenbruecke – Wolhusen:
From Emmenbruecke until Schachen the Emmenuferweg leads straight ahead the shadowy banks of the Kleine Emme. You leave the suburb area of Lucerne on comfortable paths and converge step by step to the UNESCO Biosphere Entlebuch, the biggest experience park.


You can take every hour the train back to your starting point. Since the path is situated next to the railway route you can finish the tour whenever you like.
